apply to be a CIT

Timothy Hill Christian Camp is committed to growing christian leaders so we offer a fun-filled counselor-in-training (CIT) program for high school students who are interested in learning more about leadership, working with kids and becoming camp counselors.

Our CIT's are divided into two groups: CIT 1 is for younger CIT's who are new to leadership. CIT 1 is a great place to practice basic leaderships skills, learn to serve others before yourself, focus on camper's needs and learn to set-up and take down activites. CIT 2 is for older CIT's who have already completed our CIT 1 program or equivalent. CIT 2's are on their way to becoming full counselors and we focus on more in-depth training, leadership skills and responsibility.
